Part of the library/media technology curriculum, the course covers: (1) library organization (duties and responsibilities of the library board and the librarian, library facilities, financing and budgeting, legal issues, insurance needs, library policies and procedures, self-management and time management techniques, and automation and networking strategies); (2) small library record keeping; (3) achieving success; (4) promoting the one-person library; and (5) types of small libraries (church, church music, law, business firm, medical, small historical museum or local historical society, and small public libraries). The course serves as a springboard for students to enter the program to work toward their Certificate of Applied Science or Associate of Applied Science degree in library/media technology. The two textbooks used provide practical down to earth suggestions for operating a one person library and class discussions and activities provide peer support in a variety of ways. (KRN)
